Its a more modern pattern, but Im sure you can adapt it for a robe:

Your yellow example is obviousely a pattern from at least 1850 ore even earlier. Im sure it will have a very crooked front shoulder, a shoulder seam shifted to the back and slimmer curvier sleeves than the modern pattern.

Maybe Jruley has an historical pattern?

I hope there are not too many sequelae!

Just a touch more madness; but I was already quite mad.

Can anyone point to a draft for a robe/dressing gown more like those in use during the 18th/19th centuries? The ones I mean are those that are more fitted and incorporate a waist-seam. Such garments were based on the banyan. Here's a picture of one of those:



In the film Kind Hearts and Coronets (1947) Denis Price wears a similar garment, but with ridiculous peak lapels.

My basis here is the 1948 edition of MTOC Ratspeed uploaded (which I have as a PDF). So.... would be delighted to see a complete text on the Battledress blouse draft.

Good Grief Henry Hall, glad you are back though.  I hope there are not too many sequelae!

Last year I was bitten by a wild cat, In my kitchen! I was nasty sick for many weeks, despite heavy antibiotics.

I am also back up

What happens to all the clothes that are made for awkward figures, when the same person doesn't appear in a production again? Or is it like a stock players company?

Many drafts from that period in T&C magazine (the magazine in the photos is from 1941) are either in MTOC or are simply minor variations.

Thanks dhr Pfaff!

 I'll just be clear that I wasn't employed as a doctor, but as a biochemist dealing with, among other things, a blood transfusion programme. Don't want to claim I'm something I'm not!
